Yorba Linda Seniors

Scholarship Program

In 2016, the Yorba Linda Senior Citizens' Club (YLSCC) voted to set aside $2,000 for a scholarship program to assist students in the Placentia-Yorba Linda School District for the 2016-17 school year. In 2017, along with donations in the amount of $1,000, six scholarships of $500 each were awarded to graduating seniors at Esperanza, El Dorado, Yorba Linda and Valencia High Schools who had attained at least a G.P.A. of 2.0, showed leadership skills, participated in community service and extracurricular activities and exhibited skill in writing by submitting a 250-300 word essay. The winners of the 2017 YLSCC scholarship were Kylie Palacios and Caitlyn Cardona from El Dorado High; Brooke Gagnon and Kiannah Dole for Yorba Linda High School; Jason Ta from Valencia High School, and Sarah Barron from Esperanza High School.

The scholarship program was continued in the 2017-2018 school year. In addition to the $2,000 set aside from the YLSCC, $1,500 in donations were received enabling the club to award seven $500 scholarships. The winners were Megan Stark and Caitlyn Cardenas form El Dorado High School; Jessica Parker and Katherine Travassaros from Esperanza; Sarah Heckel from Yorba Linda High, and May Wang and Justin Park from Valencia.
